    Battery weed eater

    I have a Shindaewa, made by the same company that makes Echo chain saws. It would easily compete with any gas powered string trimmer I've ever owned. The battery easily outlasts me.

    12V Sprayer pump flow and pressure question

    I'm with wh. We have pull behind sprayors with 25, 40, and 60 gallon tanks, and I'd say go at least 2 1/2 gpm.

    What is this tool?

    I was going to say the same thing, except maybe just for a cordless drill.

    1940 farmall H trany whine after rebuild

    Gears, especially used ones, will whine if they aren't 'worn in' to each other. I ecpenience the same thing on one of my Hs.

    Another interesting phenomenon

    I'll be one of the three. The last McDonald's I ate at was in Fort Morgan, Colorado in March, 1987. I got food poisoning. To be fair, I once worked with a fellow from out there and he said the food at that McDonald's always did taste a bit different from others. BTW, it doesn't take all...

    Tool Prices....

    Yeah. Whenever someone complains about tools breaking, I've always thought it said more about the user than the tool.

    Iowa Drought?

    I'm in the D2 area in eastern Nebraska. It was dry last year, and we haven't had that much moisture last winter or spring. Doesn't look too good. My wife is running the underground sprinklers on our lawn already. Last year, a friend of mine who farms both irrigated and dryland said he only...

    Tool Prices....

    I think the bottom line to all of this is, like it or not, like they say, 'It ain't like it used to be'. With modern communication and modern transportation, manufacturing has become so globalized that price and country of origin are no longer synonymous, or indicators of quality. As I said...

    Tool Prices....

    The other day while I was sitting in the customer waiting area of our local Farmer's Coop service station while a set of tires were being mounted on my pickup, I checked out the available reading material. A Mac tools catalog was included, so I leafed through it. I couldn't believe the prices...

    1963 Ford 4000 Select-O-Speed, PTO slipping.

    The only experience I've had with Select O Speed was a Ford 970, but as I recall the PTO was engaged hydraulically. That's about all I know about them. Back when I was with a public school district, we had the 970 that we bladed snow with in the winter and ran on a 7' finish mower in the...

    Tell me about "the 80's"

    What happened? In the late 1970s and early '80s I raised hogs on the side. As someone else said, banks went nuts with relaxed lending requirements. A loan officer at my bank gave me a stack of blank open notes and told me any time I needed money to fill one out for the amount and drop it in...

    D19 Diesel....

    I have a D19 diesel that hasn't run for a year and a half. Last time it ran, it had been in my shop for some maintenance, and when I ran it out and parked it I thought it had a bit different sound. Then it wouldn't restart. So far, I've changed the fuel filters, and cleaned the sediment...

    Shouler pain

    I had my right shoulder 'scoped' for a bone spur that was bothering me a couple of years ago. No pain or problem since.

    Chisel plow

    A rule of thumb that I always heard was 10hp per shank. Seems about right. I pulled a 13 shank chisel plow with a 1086 Farmall and an 11 shank unit with an 856.

    No individual tools at HF

    I once bought a laser measurer at HF. It wasn't at all accurate. I took it back and they gave me another one. It was as bad as the first. At that point the store manager went to the display, pulled all of them off of the hook, and gave me a cash refund. She said there was no way they'd try...

    No individual tools at HF

    Why complain? It's not their fault that your expectations don't meet their game plan.

    Buying a Torque Wrench... First Time!

    I have a Ryobi cordless impact wrench. Three settings, highest rated at 300 ft lbs. When I bought it, I thought it would be handy around the shop, but I didn't expect it to compete with my 1200 ft lb air impact. I haven't used the air impact since I got the Ryobi.
